{Wearing Burberry Nova Hearts boots, dress from Taipei, Sheinside sweater}

These were taken back in Victoria. If only Ottawa looks like this now. Yesterday I took out my spring clothes and my pants don't fit as well anymore. Admittedly I am sad. I am sad not because I gained weight. I am sad because I gained weight which caused me not to fit into my clothes. I like my clothes. I am also sad that none of my new weight have gone into my boobs. Aren't boobs just fat? So why aren't my fat going to where my fat should go?

I'm still regularly working out and running on the treadmill like I'm being chased by a bear but maybe my metabolism has started to slow down. Perhaps it's all the "Monday night is wings night" that is finally catching up to me. Why are the wings so small? Are they baby chicken wings? What's with these tiny drumsticks?

Sometimes I stare at the pile of bones and imagine if I was to thread them together to make a necklace. Maybe paint it orange and neon to make it socially acceptable. So when people compliment on it I can not only say that I made it, but that I ate it then made it. That's the type of thing I zone out about when my guy friends talk about boring shit like stocks and soccer. "Julie, do you want to sleep with me?!", one of them said this past Monday night after I made a sexual innuendo joke. Honey, if I want to sleep with you I wouldn't be eating messy ass wings in front of you.


  1. Love these photos. UGH I long for wearing shorts (without tights on). HAHA "Why are the wings so small?" My uncle use to tell me as a kid that they were pigeon wings. Fucked up, but would make sense.


  2. Perfect sweater! :)

    Kisses ♥

  3. lol, he'd probably been waiting weeks for an opening to ask you that. But even with such a bueatiful friend, the friendship itself is worth more than a few hours of...well, nevermind.
    Restaurants should serve turkey would be like Fred Flintstone style wings. :)

  4. Be glad your boobs aren't huge. I wear a 36C cup, and it sucks because whenever I pick up a size medium button up top, because that's the size I'm suppose to wear, my breasts always pop out the first couple of buttons. I hate having big boobs.

  6. Awww, I'm sorry your lovely pants aren't fitting right now! I know and I'm sure all us ladies know what it's like several times in our life! it's so normal and I felt the opposite some time ago when I lost a lot of weight. My favorite pair of jeans from River Island was so loose, I finally reordered a new pair two sizes smaller and threw my favorite old pair away finally! The weather just looks amazing and I would love to spend the whole day outside like that! You look adorable in that outfit and I'm sure in time your pants will be back on!

  7. Beautiful combination of colors!


  8. Ok, that last line literally made me LOL. I also wished Vancouver looked like your photos right now because it's been raining incessantly. You make me want to wear Spring layers and splash in the lake...and also eat chicken wings.


  9. Haha! Oh man, I know, my clothes aren't fitting as well anymore and I'm like NOOOO! I cannot afford to buy a new wardrobe to fit my new ass! UGH!
    Welp, time to relook at my diet...sigh.
    Anyway, LOVE these gorgeous photos, that last one especially <3

  10. I know right, why don't I get fat going into my boobs!? Mine goes into this little compartment between my buttocks and waist, which ends up forming a lovely inflatable donut like structure around my hips.

  15. LOL! You totally crack me up!! Yeah the unfairness of it all...I get it. The metabolism thing - uh huh, it bites you in the ass all of a sudden and you can no longer stuff your face like a teenager and forget about it. Sadness...
